Leicester City manager Enzo Maresca has confirmed that Manchester City loanee Callum Doyle will have a knee scan today.
Leicester City moved into first place in the Championship league after defeating Bristol City 1-0 at home on Saturday, thanks to a goal from Jamie Vardy.
Enzo Maresca’s side has won seven of their first eight league games, tying them on 21 points with Ipswich Town in second, but ahead on goal difference.
Doyle, on loan from Manchester City, was pulled off during halftime of Saturday’s game at the King Power Stadium. Following the game, Maresca provided the following update on the 19-year-old
“He had a problem in his knee. On Monday, they are going to scan him. Hopefully it’s nothing because it would be a big loss.”
Maresca raided former club City for the loan signing of Doyle in the summer. The centre-back has been playing on the left-side of defence for the Foxes, having played every minute of every game up until Saturday. A blow for Leicester City
Leicester City have looked very good this season. Their summer signings are all pulling their weight and Doyle has been especially useful. He’s showing why he’s so highly-rated at Manchester City and why Leicester worked so hard to bring him in this summer, with his performances in an unnatural left-back position having been impressive.
And should he have sustained a serious injury then it’ll come as a huge blow to both the club and the player, with Doyle gaining some quality experience playing or the Foxes this season.
Manchester City will surely be sweating over the injury and so too will Maresca. There is however an international break coming up and that could give Doyle a perfect resting point to get back to fitness if he has sustained an injury.
